Sweet Potato Chocolate Chip Cookies





Sweet potato chocolate chip cookies- these may be the best healthy clean eating cookie I have ever had! They are moist and soft just the way I like my cookies. The sweet potato acts as a natural sweetener and the addition of nut butter gives them a richness I love.

Here is the recipe rundown-

You will need: baking pan, parchment paper, large bowl, food processor, medium pot, mixing spoon. 
  • 2 cups pureed sweet potato (about 2 medium sweet potatoes)
  • 1/2 cup oat flour (can be sub. w/ another kind of flour)
  • 1/2 cup nut butter (Recipe to homemade Nut Butter)
  • 2 eggs
  • 3 T maple syrup
  • 1 tsp vanilla

Spices:
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp La Boite Yemen #10 (a blend of ginger, cinnamon, and clove- sub with 1/2 tsp ginger, 1/4 tsp clove, and additional 1/4 tsp cinnamon)
  • 1 tsp cacao powder
  • 1/4 tsp allspice
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 3/4 cup dark chocolate chips



Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

1. Boil a medium pot of water. Peel and dice sweet potatoes, add to water. Cook till they can be easily forked. Once they are done add to the food processor and pulse till smooth. Let cool.

2. Mix dry ingredients- oat flour, spices, baking soda, baking powder, and salt. Cut in the nut butter with a fork or a pastry cutter if you have one. I ended up using my hands.

3. Add eggs, maple syrup, and vanilla. Mix in sweet potato and then chocolate chips.

4. Scoop onto parchment paper or foil lined baking sheet- I used a mini ice cream scooper. Then press down with a fork.

5. Bake for 15-17 minutes.


These cookies will not disappoint. The sweet potatoes, spices, and chocolate are a decadent combination.

  3. Made these! Agree: made 24, with about 90 calories per cookie. They are like a cross between a muffin and a cookie, and are really delicious.

  4. Has anyone tried them with an egg substitute? Like flax seed and water?
